Located about 3 minutes walk from the Rialto stop on the Venice Water Taxi, and 10 minutes walk to St Mark's plaze, this affordable B & B (for Vennice during the summer) suits basic needs from a good location. I choose a stay in a room with a double bed and shared bathroom. The management kept the rooms and bathrooms quite clean, but the *modest* breakfast consisted of a tea or cappucino, a juice and a packaged breakfast roll. We often found ourselves forced to eat immediately upon leaving the apartment.
As for the management, we could not decipher who they were, and we very much felt like we rented a flat rather than stayed at a B & B. We met only the evening escort (more on that chap below) and the breakfast server. Now, the breakfast server may or may not have been the owner. He seemed quite pleasant, but I found his role a bit peculiar, for he takes the payment (without identifying precisely his status with the B & B) provides a receipt (with the establishment's name on it, thankfully, since he expressed a preference for cash payment). At any rate, my only real complaint with the stay concerned the 10 euro "late arrival fee" (any arrival after 8pm) for an escort from the water taxi to the apartment. Useless, really, as anyone could direct you to the establishement. The man met us, barely said hello, began walking briskly, made my wife carry her luggage, took us to the room, gave us two keys, processed some paper work and then asked for the 10 euro fee, which was his salary. In the midst of this hasty exchange, he forgot to tell us about the misquito problem in the room and the electrical equipment provided in order to mitigate the problem. The misquitos feasted on me all night (over 20 bites and very sleepy the next morning). So, if you stay here, don't be bashful about asking questions to the hurried employee who greets you.
